difference, because obama has over 800 of these field offices, concentrated in the swing states, you know, the eight or 10 or 12 states that are really crucial in this election. the romney campaign has about 300. so there's april quantitative difference, and there is some political science research showing that just having that field office, being on the ground in a certain community, does increase your share of the vote. but then there's a qualitative difference as well. the obama campaign, it's almost like a starbucks or a mcdonald's, a franchise operation, where every office is very much the same. it's all controlled by headquarters. they're all working off the same game plan, right down to every single office has what looks like this sort of nice grass-roots touch, a poster on the wall that says i support the president because -- and then everybody's handwritten in their reasons that they love obama underneath. every single office has that same poster. so it's very standardized, very controlled, very disciplined, and they're all working off the same plan. romney actually does not have
two percentage points ahead. and you can see the same in florida with a huge state. president obama with just a one percentage lead and look at new hampshire. it from the 47%. and i was, six percentage points. and in iowa--6 percentage points. and president obama is leading in these states but it is also in mayor margin of error. he is still however within striking distance. check out this superstore sandy forced both candidates to alter their campaign schedule, big time this week. on facebook, we are asking you what impact do think sandy will have on the election. join the conversation. we will be reading comments on air later in the show. >> off we will have continuing coverage of the election countdown continues tonight and will sit down with kron 4 is political analyst michael yaki. however, before that we have a controversial issue to talk about. a new poll is out about proposition 34 which would repeal the death penalty in california. kron4's dan kerman is here in dan how are california leading? >> at this point the poll finds a majority of californians are in favor of repeali
tradition in this state. the fact that it's an obama fire wall is what is remarkable. this is a state that mitt romney could do well. he should do well. running the obama's campaign core strategy appealing to middle class voters, working class whites in this state makes a big difference when it comes to ground game and that critical early voting. mitt romney has had a real problem connecting to those folks. >> who is he leading with in ohio? >> president obama is leading with women. he's leading with centrist business 0 points. losing independents by two points. losing white men by a considerable margin. leading with folks who make undered 50 e$50,000 a year. so the national themes are evident here in ohio. >> when you say independents and centrists, you're describing them as two separate things. a lot of viewers think independents means centrists. >> in the past, they have. one of the fascinating things about this election, the impact of the tea party on independent voters, it moved them to the right. so you see independents edging toward mitt romney. president obama has had a decide
, traveling with president obama. let's start here in ohio. the state has a very complex economy. here's some of what we've been hearing from voters on this trip. >> just a lot of depressed areas. a lot of joblessness. >> just looking at the unemployment rate, it's so scary to me. >> the last four years has not been very good for our small business. >> with the debt crisis, our country has, that burden is going to be on us in the future. >> all of the skills i had are obsolete now. >> i'm not up at the white house. i don't see rich people all the time. i see a lot of poor people. >> shut down, closed, reduced wages, ship the jobs overseas. we lost 55,000 factories. >> we're probably never have the things that we did 30, 40 years ago. >> balance the budget. we keep spending more and more. somewhere along the line it's going to come back and haunt us. >> they didn't plan for us. now we have to clean up the mess that they made. >> john avalon joins me now. we have been on that bus from florida through north carolina, through virginia, through and into ohio. the economy is number one concern. onc
block just almost as big as the united states. it has more people in it. so, president obama and certainly we know from tim geithner, the treasury secretary who continually beats them over the head for europeans to do something. but they are powerless. they have to stand and watch. >> so, we know that over the last four years the president's tried this diplomacy with europe. has it worked? you say it's because he can't do anything. >> on economic grounds, absolutely. this is a debt crisis in the heart of the european countries. no matter how it started, no matter where it's going. it's up to the ecb, the european central bank and the central bank for europe and up to the imf and the u.s. could have some influence there. but fundamentally, fundamentally the u.s. has to stand on the sidelines and watch, be worried and warned. >> now, deficit. big issue for a lot of voters this election season. we know that governor romney has said in the third debate that u.s. is on track to follow greece, that america is the next greece. is this just really hot rhetoric or is it likely? >> it
there with its four corridors. president obama won the state in 2008 by 9%. joining us from denver this morning is the editorial page editor with the denver post. what are the top issues for colorado voters? guest: like everywhere else, it is the economy and jobs. energy is a big issue and immigration is a big issue as well. host: what are the demographics of voters in colorado? who votes? >> 52% are women. 48% are men. republicans have about a 20,000 vote advantage. the state is equally divided. one-third are republican, one- third are democrats, and the rest are unaffiliated. you try to figure out which way they are going to break. they will talk a lot about appealing to women, appealing to latinos. throughout the course of the 2012 campaign, we have heard a lot about the strategy of appealing to women and latinos to eke out a victory for democrats. host: where are the traditionally democratic and republican areas of the state? guest: denver and boulder tend to be democratic. the fifth biggest county for democrats with voter registration is el paso county. that is typically viewed as sort of
women. and another fascinating thing obama gets 43% of the wheat vote, higher than in most states. is it all about the auto bailout, smart move politically? >> it is all about the auto bailout. the chevy cruise which is assembled in ohio has ohio parts. down to the seat covers. and everybody knows that the alternative to the auto bailout would have been 13%, 14% unemployment in that state. chris: is there a national positive for him on the auto front or is it just in a couple of states, wisconsin, obviously michigan, those kind of mi western industrial statse? >> coal being part of the state that's doing well. obviously that message will play better to romney there than to obama. but nevertheless, to back out for a second a look at the economy, generally speaking, you have states important swing states where the unemployment rate is lower than the national average. but the recent set of data we see a brightening of consumer attitudes. we see consumer sentiment and surprisingly at a five-year high despite historically high gas prices. despite a lot of the concerns that this is our
. president obama took the state in 2008 with a 4.5-point margin, but the state went for bush in 2000 and 2004. the election is up for grabs. the state is up for grabs. voters who have already voted in ohio favor president obama or mitt romney by a 2 to 1 margin. that's according to a new "time" magazine poll. voters who haven't voted yet are apparently evenly split. john is with me. he's qualified for this because he hailed from ohio. >> my mother and my grandmother still lives there. >> what are you looking for? what conversation are we going to have with those people in ohio? >> it's amazing again it's coming done to ohio and every vote counts. the swing states are the southern area around cincinnati, the area around youngstown, and up into toledo. the whole economic profile of ohio is tied up in the political profile. it's been the manufacturing backbone of the country and it's gotten gutted in the past three decades. >> steel, general manufacturing, and then autos. >> that's right. that's one of the reasons the auto bailout is a big reason in ohio and why it's a benefit to president obama
this state has prospered under a republican governor. look, this is a state that is split. it's a virtual dead heat. obama's got a bit of a lead, but as you know it's within that statistical margin of error so it could be a few points off one way or the other. it will come down to who comes out to vote. the last few days will be about encouraging those who have already decided. there's very little left in terms of evidence as to what you could do to possibly tell people i'm your guy. the question is you are sort of leaning towards me. do i go out and do it. mitt romney has made some errors in the last week or so in ohio, particularly with this issue of jeep and chrysler, getting money in the auto bailout and supposedly transferring manufacturing, having intention to transfer manufacturing to china. that is not playing well in ohio. >> let's talk about how the polls are playing in ohio. it's not possible to overstate the importance of ohio in determining who is going to win tuesday. no republican has ever won the presidency without taking a state. let's take a look at very latest data. a c
that he faces re-election in a pretty democratic state, and obama understands that he faces re-election next week. those are political realities. they're politicians, and they don't deny that. but they were doing their jobs, and i think christie's role here, as i'm sure you know as a former governor, it was a big deal for christie to come out and do what he did. that also really hurt romney. >> eliot: yes, that was the political maneuver of the week. he played it perfectly. switch gears for a moment. i don't want to say that anything is over and done, but the president is comfortable. the united states senate, a pivot or blocking position for the past couple of years. any particular race there that you think is interesting that has evolved that is demonstrative with what in our politics over the last couple of months? >> i think there are several. the north dakota race there is a good chance. i think missouri, claire mccaskill has a good chance to hold her seat. the most important race that i would point to is the indiana race which is richard murdoch the tee party republican w
states. barack obama has the lead in most of those states. i think he's been doing great job these past couple days of showing he, as the commander in chief, has a lot to do and he's been doing it. romney's problem is he doesn't really have a job in all this. >> steve, chip, thanks for sitting with us and watching this appearance by mitt romney. it's good see you guys. >> thank you. >> we are just a short time away from president obama's first campaign event today. this is a live look. green bay, wisconsin. president obama will also be in las vegas and colorado before heading to ohio tomorrow. we will have the president's appearance for you live. we'll be right back. i have a cold... i took dayquil, but i still have a runny nose. [ male announcer ] dayquil doesn't treat that. huh? [ male announcer ] alka-seltzer plus rushes relief to all your worst cold symptoms, plus it relieves your runny nose. [ sighs ] thank you! [ male announcer ] you're welcome. that's the cold truth! that was me... the day i learned i had to start insulin for my type 2 diabetes. me... thinking my only option was
a few days before the election, president obama is leading mitt romney in three battleground states, wisconsin, iowa and new hampshire. you can head to y nbc.com to reach john harwood's take on the poll and the race for the white house. sdwr joining us is a political reporter at the "washington post" following all of this very closely of course. sean, thanks for joining us. i want to start with this dynamic een obama and chris christie. what's the chris christie strategy here? because it seems to be taking some of the momentum away from his own party. >> yeah, this is really interesting. you have somebody in governor christie who has been an outson critic of president obama. but what we've heard the last three days is nothing but praise for the president and the pearl response to his needs in new jersey. so a little bit of a different tone there. but in times like these when you have natural disasters, you tend to see politicians put politics aside. that said, there's certainly a political up side for obama appearing alongside one of mitt romney's top surrogates yesterday. so sort o
reconsidered his position. president obama would be speaking to crowd after crowd in swing states if it hadn't been for the storm. he has less than a week to convince undecided voters. most americans have already examined his record over the past four years. he started his term with a sentiment offered by many of those who came before him. >> that america can change. our union can be perfected. >> many americans have grown tired of what their country was come to represent under george w. bush. obama promised to change at home and abroad. he brought an end to the war in iraq. he said u.s. combat forces would pull out of afghanistan by the end of 2014. and he promised to decimate al qaeda. >> after a firefight, they killed osama bin laden and took custody of his body. we can say to those families who lost loved ones to al qaeda's terror justice has been done. >> some argue obama has not met expectations in the mideast. he faced persistent trouble with a come dominant region in iran. still he has focused foreign policy to make it more multilateral. part of what he calls a broader shift. >> afte
where a state mr. romney is closing the gap and says president obama is up two points in the quinnepiac poll, but there is the average from "real clear politics" survey says mr. romney is leading half a point. then there is ohio. ohio the romney campaign acknowledges it will be a battle down to the very last minute and they have been trailing in some polls. quinnepiac poll has romney down five points but the "real clear politics" average is 2.4 suggesting it is very, very close. the romney campaign arguing that the ground game will put them over the top and they're ready to win this. mr. romney today will unveil his final sprint which will start in ohio. i will have over 100 senators, congressman, governors, state and local officials around the country on stage with him and ready to fan out over the weekend to hit 11 key battleground states. finally, jenna, romney's last event of the campaign takes place monday night in new hampshire, the place where he has a vacation home, nashua the gait city, the "nashua telegraph" which endorsed barack obama in 2008, switched its allegiances and end
, ohio, right now. our brand new cnn/orc poll shows president obama with a narrow lead in that state 50% to mitt romney's 47%. that's within the sampling error making it still effectively a dead heat. our chief national correspondent john king is joining us right now. he's in ohio as well. john, take us inside these numbers. >> wolf, they are fascinating when you look deep in this poll. the president you just showed he's here in ohio. governor romney will be here tontd. they expect some 35,000 republicans at his rally. in this part of the state i'm in cincinnati tonight. when you look deep in our poll you see this one will be fought out through the last poll closing on election night. look at these two candidates among independents. governor romney with a slight edge 48% to 46%. again, that's a statistical tie well within the margin of error. the auto bailout is one of the things the president thinks will help him here in ohio. you heard him mention that in this speech. look at this in the industrial northern part of the state, across northern ohio where you have many auto-related direc
the obama campaign is now going to go by advertising in some of these states as well. minnesota, and michigan and pennsylvania for some of this late romney moved. pennsylvania i don't really buy that its competitive. i've been keeping a close eye on it for a long time, but if it's going to be then it's going to be competitive because republicans are going to be able to turn out a large number of voters in the western half of the state, pittsburgh, johnstown the user be held by jack murtha is told by congressman mark chris was the only district in the country to vote for john kerry in 2004 and john mccain in 2008 the only from d to are in the election and those are the voters that president obama once derided to their guns in the region and they are the exact kind of white working-class voters having the most trouble connecting with. succumb if the republicans are going to put in play the will to live in a sneak attack way and on the western half of the state the obama campaign as well by the way they've got to turn out machine the philadelphia there's a reason some of these are
with a recap of the markets. >>> u.s. president barack obama would be speaking to crowd after crowd in swing states if it hadn't been for the storm. he has less than a week to convince undecided voters. st americans have already examined his record over the past four years. he started his term with a sentiment offered by many of those who came before him. >> that america can change. our union can be perfected. >> many americans have grown tired of what their country had come to represent under george w. bush. obama promised change at home and abroad. he brought an end to the war in iraq. he said u.s. combat forces would pull out of afghanistan by the end of 2014. and he promised to decimate al qaeda. >> after a fire fight they killed osama bin laden and took custody of his body. we can say to those families who have lost loved ones to al qaeda's terror, justice has been done. >> but some argue obama has not met expectations in the middle east. he's faced persistent trouble with a dominant player in the region, iran. he has focused foreign policy to make it more multilateral, part of what he
. in this swing state, there are more female voters than male voters. obama supporters say women should support the president because of his stance on abortion. >> i feel strongly that no one should be forced to have children until they are prepared to have children. i do not really think it is a pro-life versus pro-choice issue so much as it is my choice, not mitt romney's choice when i have children. >> obama's stand on abortion is one reason democrats are ahead with female voters in the state of colorado, and some number- cruncher's think this might decide the vote here in the tightest in state of the mall -- of them all. >> the german foreign minister is in mali for talks with the provisional government on the ongoing crisis. then the country fell into chaos last march after a military coup. shortly afterwards, radical militants including members of al qaeda took control of a power vacuum and took control over the country's north. >> a united nations security council resolution earlier this month has left open the possibility of international military intervention to reclaim this territory
.7%. and president obama won this state by a large margin back in 2008 with 9%. let's begin with top issues for new hampshire voters. guest: good morning. and before i get started i want to thank c-span and c-span radio on 15 years being on the year. it's been a very valuable resource for some of us. up here in new hampshire we are a swing state four electoral votes. it sound like a small number. but if al gore had won the four votes he would have become president. so they are very important and this state right now is a toss up. the issues are a little bit different here in new hampshire than they would be across the country. unlike a state like nevada that has a higher unemployment rate, new hampshire is at 5.7%. that's higher than it was all summer around 5.2%. this means that jobs and the economy is an issue that is front and center and it is the number one issue but it may not ring home as much as other issues. host: what areas of new hampshire are the swing areas of that state historically, have provided the winner with the electoral votes? guest: well, right now, we're seeing that the candid
and on swing state, virginia. president obama resumes campaigning tomorrow, just five days before the election with appearances in green bay, wisconsin, boulder, colorado, and las vegas. unchartered waters of the two campaigns, no doubt about it. the same for election officials in some of the areas that are hit by sandy. joe johns is with us now from washington. do we have, joe, any idea, six days out, of the potential disruptions we could see on election day? >> reporter: we're at least beginning to get an outline of it, but we just won't be sure until we get to election day. we have been paying a lot of attention to the battleground states, virginia, pennsylvania, and north carolina, all in the past, if you will, of the storm. the issues are about whether early voting is affected and then what is going to happen on election day. okay, starting with pennsylvania, there is no early in person voting in pennsylvania, but the question is whether in person voting on election day might be affected in and around philadelphia. now, this was a state that was just slightly beginning to tick over to the
voters out there. president obama and governor romney spending millions to get their vote. especially in battleground states. check out this cnn electoral map. the states in yellow are up for grabs. blue are safe for obama. light blue, leaning obama. red, those are safe for romney. light red leaning romney. but what will it take to win over the undecided voters, what do they want to know. "saturday night live" had this take. >> before you get our vote, you're going to have to answer some questions. questions like -- >> when is the election? >> what are the names of the two people running? and be specific. >> who's the president right now? is he or she running? >> in real life, undecided voters sound like this. >> i want there to be continued job growth. >> don't say republican, don't say democrat, just get it done. >> i have not heard anything other than this tough guy rhetoric, and numbers that don't add up. >> it's critical right now, to make the best decision. >> a lot of people need relief, and i'm not too sure the election is going to give it, no matter who gets elected. >> i hop

lives in the battleground state of colorado which is why she called him barunk obama. apparently the girl burst into tears after hearing another story about the election on npr, and today the radio station actually apologized. >>> maybe she has a smile on her face now, because she probably went out and got some candy this evening. kids knocking on the door, saying trick-or-treat, and you put candy in their basket and they went next door. but the rain got in the way in some areas. santa rosa, petaluma, marin county, you were the hot spots for that rainfall. for the month of october, wrapping things up tonight, some of you were above normal, some of you below normal. concord and san francisco running above average, san jose and oakland, below average. the high-def doppler is working overtime. walnut creek all the way south to san ramon and dublin, you're seeing showers. in the south bay, we're seeing showers as far as south of sunnyvale, but you stayed dry for the trick-or-treating this evening. a cold front is going through the bay area. that's what's giving us the showers tonight
to college students. they were really enthusiastic in 2008, helping barack obama win this state, winning the nine electoral votes. this time around they are not as enthusiastic. college students are telling us the reason for that is because they don't think they'll have a job when they graduate from college. so, christine, you have it absolutely right. what it comes down to here in this swing state, it is about jobs and how it's affected people personally. >> kyung lah, the white house just released its statement on the jobs report this morning, saying -- the very first words are more work needs to be done, it provides further evidence that the u.s. economy is continuing to heal. so both the white house and the romney campaign weighing in. >>> the last jobs report, of course, is not without controversy. some even accused the obama administration of cooking the books to bring the unemployment down. misguided accusation, for sure. the method used to calculate the numbers can be confusing. with so much on the line we'll explain exactly how it works and talk to the secretary of labor about t
